Tropical storm warning, Trio, Trying new food, Teaching, Testimony

Today was spent preparing for tropical storm Chantal that is on track to hit Barbados tomorrow (Tuesday the 9th) at around 8:00 am.  They are stocked up on water and gas and she thinks they are ready.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Great news.  Joining Sister Herrick and me is Sister Forbes.  She is from St. Vincent and is here on a mini mission.  She will eventually serve full time in Mississippi.  I am now in a trio.  It will take some adjusting, but it will be great.

As far as new things, Sister Forbes plaited my hair.  My tan lines continue to get better and better.  Tracting in the sun does that to you.  Yesterday we went to visit a young man we found off a random dirt road.  He wasn't there but his mom was.  She had met with the missionaries before and she is willing to try again.  When we were finished with the lesson she asked how we were liking Barbados and asked how the food is. We said we haven't really tried a lot of new things.  She was surprised and went to the kitched and brought out a huge plate of food for the three of us to split.  We had congally, it is a type of fish.  She is going to feed us something new every time.

Not a lot has happened this week.  Just the usual missionary work.

The success story...Miralda's grandchildren.  She has 2 eleven year olds that continue to progress.  They remember things and have started reading the Book of Mormon from the beginning.  We continue to find new people to teach and we love working with the members.  We are working hard with less actives to bring them back to church so they can receive the blessings Heavenly Father wants to give them.  Member missionary work is important and I encourage everyone to work with the missionaries.  When members and missionaries work together, miracles will happen.

Sunday was testimony meeting so here is my very condensed testimony:

I know the Church is true.  I know Joseph Smith was called as a prophet and restored Jesus Christ's church on the earth.  I know President Monson is the prophet today.  I know Jesus Christ lives and made it so we have the opportunity to receive eternal life.  I know Heavenly Father loves each of us and we can pray to him.  Prayers are answered.  In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
